Brazil

defender

Thiago Silva

has expressed his sadness after team-mate

Richarlison

was racially abused during the friendly win over Tunisia.

After Richarlison scored against Tunisia and his celebration, some Tunisian fans in the stadium in Paris started throwing bananas at him. Silva, who played many times at the Parc des Princes during his stay at Paris Saint-Germain, expressed his displeasure with the events of last night and the insults to his teammate.

He said:

"It hurts me. Frankly, I'm very sad. That's not football. Football is about supporting your team.

"Afterwards, on the field, we give our best for our team. But gestures like that [shown] on video, it's not good for football."

Asked about his return to Paris, Silva added:

"It was good to come back to the Parc. Unfortunately, the atmosphere was against us. Normally, here, it is a good atmosphere for me, but today the public was against us.

"But it was good to come back here. I spent eight years, eight and a half years here – it was a good time to come back."
